Wish list and maybe a dance {if Im lucky}!


This wall is so patiently waiting for...

This! Why is it just leaning up against the wall? Well, because one son has decided that it is more fun to hang out with friends then to help his mother do home improvements. Go figure! I tell ya, what has this world and teenagers come to. He did want to travel to Amy's house though, to help her out in a Jiffy. She has four beautiful daughters...now just how can a Mom compete with that! Guess I better learn to use that miter saw on my own.

Now here is where I need some real help. I'm looking for this jewel.

Is it not just the prettiest thing ever. I have looked hi and low to find it and I need yall's help. If anyone has seen this in a store near you..please tell. I would be forever grateful~

Speaking of pretty..does this room make you feel all fuzzy inside. Well, OK maybe not fuzzy but I sure do love it. What is it about those blues and browns that just make you relax. I kind of thought they would go out of style by now {because I'm trying to add a bit here and there} but nope.. I hope they are here to stay for a while.
I'm all excited about tonight because I get to dress up all fancy and see my husband in a suit {if it still fits}. Nothing is better than seeing your man in a suit! You know what I'm talking about ladies.{blush..blush}! Secretly...between you and me..I'm so hoping he asks me to dance~ I will let yall know how the night goes. Wish me luck! PS.. I really don't like to dance but to just be close and smelling his cologne is so worth it. See ya gals!

  7. Oh yes, that room in SL is to die for! I copied her pillow ruffles in my living room. Love the blue and brown...don't have any of it though.

    Have fun with your hubby. If he doesn't ask you to dance then hint!

  8. Cindy at Romantic Home (she is listed as one of my favorite blogs on my side bar) she has done a lot of refurb. work and has used several pressed wood pieces like this one!

    Also - thank you so much for all of your kind remarks on my blog about my husband ...and our journey through his illness. Comforting words go a long way.

  10. Don't you know when boys see girls in the picture then moms are always going to come in after that....everytime unless...well need to come up with something...

    Sounds like a fun time tonight with your man...have a good one! Yep I like smelling my hubby's cologne also.

    Will look around in my small town and see if I see this design or something close to it.

  13. Ohhh...Have fun! I hope you get a dance! I love lying my head on Zack's shoulder, close and that cologne!! Ahhh...Anyways. I will be on the look for the little molding embellishment. It might be a piece you could order from one of those two home improvement stores.
    Can't wait to see what you do with the molding!

  14. The dance sounds devine, Susie!

    Did you try Renovation Hardware or Van Dykes, for the piece? They might have what you are looking for.

  21. Oh, I can so relate to your just to be close and smell his cologne. That gets me every time!!! Can't wait to see your finished project...tell your son us ladies out here in blogging world need him to help you!!!

  22. See...told you about the "tool thing"...workin' already:)

    We have a speciality store with molding and things like you are looking for. It's pretty pricy though???

    Have fun with you guy tonight and take pictures to share!!!

  23. heehee, what the blazes IS that, waiting to be installed?? I must be extra-ditzy today. Looks like vertical blinds to me!! :)
    As for the appeal of the suit, my hubby had to wear one every day a couple years back, to the absolute worst job he ever had. It was not the most fun phase of life for us. I get way more excited about comfy, weekend clothes--because that tells me he's happy and ready for adventure! :)
    Hope you get that dance...

  24. I came over from Kelly's Korner to tell you how sorry I am about your little dog. We have had so many dogs and each one has been a part of the family, so I know it hurts to lose a dog.

    Also, I was reading your blog and since you are looking or a little decorator molding I might be of some help. (Hubs is the wood worker) One of his mags he gets has wood molding you can order to add to pieces. Look at rocklerpro.com

    Blessings, Judy (Kelly's Mom)

  25. A cabinet shop should have what you are looking for. I've even seen them at Home Depot and Lowe's, maybe just not quite this "chunky". Also, a woodworking shop should have them as well.

  26. That first photo with the "FDL" plaque/tin....that is the one my sister keeps NAGGING me about. HA!
    Tell me what it is......or how it can be done. OR if you can still do them.
    When you get the chance of course...HA!

  28. Sue how much more crap can you take. You are the strongest person I know. I am still in shock about Drake. I know how much you loved that little dog. I'll call ya in the morning, we gonna have a great pampering girls day, my treat.

  29. How fun! Y'all have a wonderful time!

    I wonder if you can find those pretty pieces at Lowes or HD?? If I run across one, I'll let you know.

    Hugs,
    Susan

    Just read your sister's comment...I am guessing that all is not well at your house. I am so sorry!! Bless your heart!

  30. Have your tried Van Dyke's restorers on line? They have a ton of that stuff. Jen

  31. Have a wonderful time with your husband ~ love the way they smell when they're all dressed up and going out!

    I haven't seen one as lovely as you have posted. I have seen them at Lowes in the past but they were slightly different.

  36. Hope you had a fabulous time with your hubby...in his suit...with his great cologne....

  37. Susie - I am always a day late and a dollar short, as we say here in TN, but I hope you had a wonderful date with your hubby! And I can't even get my son to take out the trash, so at least you got SOME manual labor out of yours! The Southern Living Room is my inspiration room - still on paper - but my darling daughter tells me this is what I should do so I am hanging on to those photos for dear life until I get it accomplished. It's Beautiful - enjoy this week...

  38. Well, I will definitely have to check out your sister's blog, just in case, lol.

  39. Hi Dear One! Did you get your wood up yet? Oh, that didn't sound right, did it? But you know what I mean! :)
    Oh, thank you...I hope I'll get some grand baby bumps soon. If not, I may have to borrow Maddy!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  40. The piece in the photo is an olive leaf onlay by Kraftmaid. How do I know these things? I am a DIY kitchen design addict/bargain hunter who purchased the corbels for her kitchen on eBay (saved a TON of $$ over the big box store price). There is one for sale now on eBay... Kraftmaid onlay
    Of course, you can get a price at your big box or KM dealer.

    Love your blog, BTW!

  41. Hi Susie!

    I use this website to find great-looking wood appliques.

    THIS ONE might just do the trick...but I'll let you be the judge! :-)
